I wouldnt junk them if I didnt have to. The sets are destroyed as I told the members earlier last year. I had part of our storage shed crash on them. The only thing that managed to survive was the CRTs and parts of chassis. The 20BC50 is still in good shape so that will be sold as a whole TV. But the others.. Crushed.
Trust me. My heart dropped when it happened.

Well I had these sets stored in my lot. Im rebuilding the storage shed at the moment. 3 of these sets are under a tarp. Well part of the tarp blew up exposing a section of my CTC40. Someone came by this weekend while I was away and decided they wanted copper. So now all the yokes are missing and they cut wires out of all the sets. The CTC40 chassis is still ok with the fact the wires are cut out from the yoke. Anode lead is cut as well. The chassis worked well with the fact the focus section needs work. Anyone want the chassis? $50 free shipping.
The other two were a heathkit GR-295 and a Zenith. All three CRTS are still in good shape, (im sure they didnt want to make a scene).
That just upsets me, I was going to find a donor cabinet for the CTC40.
Copper theft is on the rise in Placerville, CA

That really sucks. I just WISH that I could catch someone doing that to another person's belongings. The "TV rapist" would end up with some serious medical problems.

Very sorry to hear that. It just blows my mind that people feel they have the right to go onto others property and steal copper, or anything. Very desperate I guess.

Yea. And the fact that not only did they steal the yokes they cut all the wiring out of the sets. Tuner wiring and all.
They left the anode caps connected to the CRT's. Wonder if they got a nice wap when they cut them off. Hmmm

Not sure if you got my PM, but I'm interested in the CTC40 chassis if you still have it.

I had this happen last year. Somebody stole the yoke and cut wires out of a swivel-based Motorola that was in a shed. They stripped a dozen or so 90's BPC sets too, but seeing the moto like that hurts. I still have it and I'm eventually gonna restore it when I find a replacement yoke.
